Timberdoodle's review
Prismacolor is the best!
Why use colored pencils? Colored pencils are convenient, easy to transport, and practical to work with anywhere. Colored pencils will allow you lots of control so that it is easy to keep your lines clean and precise. Unlike painting, your child can work all day with the vibrant colors of colored pencils without any of the mess.

Unsurpassed Quality
Using top-flight colored pencils is a lot like painting with watercolors. Because the pigment is somewhat transparent, the hue of one pencil applied over another will combine visually to create a new hue. Such complex compositions are pleasing to the eye. On the other hand, unmixed colors often convey rawness and lack of subtlety. So where does a mom with little art background go to find a high-quality colored pencil? As with all our products, the first step was research. No matter where we turned, resource books, art courses, artists, even sales representatives for competing manufacturers, the recommendations were all the same: Prismacolor.

Perfect for Beginners and for Professional Artists
Our Prismacolor pencils have brilliant, blendable, permanent colors. Lead texture is soft and provides a smooth "feel" with excellent lay-down of color. These pencils are thick enough that when using a blunt point larger areas are covered quickly. For beginning artists to advanced professional artists, Prismacolor products are designed for every level of expertise.

The Perfect Introductory Kit
Whether you are an artist who likes to experiment with a tool before stocking up, or a Mom looking for an affordable way to provide Prismacolors for even her youngest artists, this 12-Piece Pencil Set is perfect! Includes 12 of the most-used colors. Give them a try, then let us know what you think!

    You can FEEL the quality! September 14, 2010
    Reviewer: Tracy G. from McKenna, WA  
    These colored pencils are incredible!  We don't even use crayons or any other brand of colored pencils--they are just not worthy of our children's precious art!  We are on our second boxed set (48 piece) and are looking forward to replacing it with another when this set gets too short.  These pencils are well worth the price!  You can FEEL the quality!

    prismacolor is unbeatable October 26, 2009
    Reviewer: Janine Condi from Penacook, NH United States  
    I've been using Prismacolor pencils for over 20 years, and I really think they are the best pencils on the market.  Their blending capabilities are superb, as is the selection of available colors.  Because the lead is so soft, it is easy to create varying depths of color using a single pencil.  I've used a wide variety of Prismacolor products and find them all to be of superior quality.  I love the fact that my 9 year old son is using the same pencils I use, and loving them too.  If you are looking for professional quality art supplies, you won't be disappointed in these pencils.

    A lasting gift for all ages! October 26, 2009
    Reviewer: Julie K. from Sherwood, AR  
    These are the best colored art pencils we have ever used. They last a long time and hold up well even with our young children learning to use them. The colors make the picture come alive even for our beginning artists. We are ordering more. A lasting gift for all ages!
